A girl walks away with tears in her eyes, she just told her daddy goodbye. Six months is a long time for him to be away, but she's done this before, she'll be okay. Six months later and she can't contain, the excitement of this most special day. She looks for his military garb through the crowd, then spots the man of whom she's so proud. Soon they're embracing and they're crying once more, but these are tears of joy, not of remorse. He'll have to go back in a few weeks time, until then, she'll be completely dry-eyed.
